Venous Doppler

Procedure – Blood Pressure Cuffs To The Arms And Legs

Systolic pressures are measured in sequence at different points along the legs, and compared to the pressure in the arms. By comparing the pressures the physician can detect suspected blockages.

Before The Procedure

There are no special preparations for this test.

During The Procedure

Pressures will also be taken up and down your legs. The technician will chart out these pressures on a map of the vascular system, and put it in your chart for your physician to review.

The results will be discussed on your follow up visit.
